Some news and thank yous

Dr. Kenyon called and left me a message tonight, while I was playing volleyball. The only thing he told me was that the drugs (Xeloda and Tykerb) have been approved by insurance and should be in the mail. No news yet on the bone or CT scan, although as some people told me today, if I haven't heard yet, that probably means that it's good news. If they found something, they would've called me sooner. Let's hope that's the case!

In the meantime, i wanted to thank Susanna Luck, Parcella Provance, and Paula Long for sending me books. They are much appreciated! I'm sorry I haven't taken the chance to thank you all in person yet.

And, thank you to my friends and colleagues for listening . .. and to Joan for inviting me over for dinner and for the wine tasting. That was interesting and the wines were very good! I think all of your good wishes and prayers are helping. I'm doing okay and feel that I'm able to live my life, regardless of the cancer. I'm still worried and a bit anxious and also tired (thanks for hot flashes and insomnia keeping me up at night), but overall, considering the latest news, I'm doing okay, moodwise. So, I appreciate it and I'm sure that it's because you're all there for me.

I have just decided that my toast is "To Hell With Cancer" for the rest of this month! It's not just for me, but for everyone who's been touched by this disease and are also currently dealing with it. Are you with me?!! Thanks!

Hi Dee: My name is Liz Kreger and I'm a five time cancer survivor who is currently on the combo cocktail of Tykerb and Xeloda. I'd recently posted to Jeanne Sather's blog and she got in touch with me to say that you were looking for other patients on this combo. Feel free to contact me directly at liz@lizkreger.com.
